What is the symbol of a fuse?

The symbol for a thermal fuse used in any electrical circuit diagram. A thermal fuse is a temperature sensitive switch. It operates on the temperature rather than the current unless the current is sufficient to increase the temperature above the threshold point. This symbol represents a fused switch.

What does an open switch do?

The terms “open” and “closed” refer to switches as well as entire circuits. An open switch is one without continuity: current cannot flow through it. A closed switch is one that provides a direct (low resistance) path for current to flow through.

What is a normally open contact?

Normally open – Is a contact that does not flow current in its normal state. Energizing it and switching it on will close the contact, causing it to allow current flow.

How do you tell if relay is normally open or closed?

As relay diagrams show, when a relay contact is normally open (NO), there is an open contact when the relay is not energized. When a relay contact is Normally Closed (NC), there is a closed contact when the relay is not energized. In either case, applying electrical current to the contacts will change their state.

What is a normally open switch?

A normally open switch is a type of electrical switch. In a normally open switch, when the switch is off the contacts are open. This means the electrical connection is broken so the switch is “off”.

Is a thermostat normally open or closed?

Thermostats are made with contacts that are either normally closed (N.C. – open at high temperatures) or normally open (N.O. – closed at high temperatures). The thermostat temperature switch point is pre-calibrated by the manufacturer and is not adjustable. Reset is automatic after a decrease in temperature.

What does no NC and COM mean?

Answer. NO terminal, NC terminal and COM terminal represent contact terminals’ symbols. Each symbol means a single terminal itself: Normally Open terminal, Normally Closed terminal and Common terminal respectively. On the other hand, contact point a, contact point b and contact point c represent contact structures.

What is a motor thermostat?

A car’s engine thermostat is the component in its cooling system that opens and allows coolant to circulate once the motor is warmed up. This operates a rod that then opens a valve when the operating temperature is exceeded, allowing the hot coolant into the radiator.

What happens if you run a car without a thermostat?

If you drive without a thermostat, your engine will never reach its optimal operating temperature and your heater may blow cold air. It happens because driving without a thermostat tricks your engine into thinking it is cold outside, causing it to adjust the gas mixing valve and push more fuel to the engine.
